OXM UK: Gears of War 2 Review

OXM UK writes: "You have no idea how much a chainsaw matters until you've played Gears of War 2. It's always there and always reliable, whether you're slicing through giant pulsating hearts or doing lobotomies on Locust grubs.

In fact, there don't seem to be many occasions where the screen isn't completely dripping with blood. This game doesn't know the meaning of restraint. If it did, it would probably chainsaw that too.

Fanboys will love the fact that only one of a multitude of story arcs is concluded; everyone else will feel slightly unfulfilled. But aside from this, Gears 2 is not just the most exhilarating game you'll play this year, but possibly the most heady and downright shocking piece of entertainment full stop.

Hollywood, your days are numbered. Our only suggestion is that Epic Games takes some Ritalin before starting Gears of War 3; otherwise there's a very real possibility that the excitement is going to kill us." (Gears of War 2, Xbox 360) 9/10

Good scores and very realistic. I can't stand to see perfect 10's across the board for games that sure s he11 are not perfect.

I wonder
if GTA:IV has been released today, will it still get a massive 10/10 from reviewers ?

The game had an f'ing 98/100 on metacritic. And I'm still in a shock how the f*ck did that happened. Cause frankly, most of us will agree that it only deserve an 85-90/100.

I am happy with the scores the Gears 2 has received. They are on par with Resistance 2 and it would be annoying that gears kept getting 10s even thought they had similar problems to R2.
